that there are over 300 million guns in america, with the shooting just this afternoon, at columbus circle, 200 yards from the studio. execution style hit. most people didn't seem that bothered by it. it wasn't that shocking. in britain, it would be the biggest story for weeks. it's such an endemic gun culture that almost no outrage seems to register with people. >> it's unfortunate where if it's a high-profile tragedy like in aurora, colorado, people talk about it a lot and then the story fades away. you have not seen a lot of political will on either side of the aisle toward actually changing the laws around guns. i think the point that bob costas has made in his remarks since his initial sunday night football discussion of guns is that there's the cultural issue in terms of people seeing guns as a solution to problems. it often causes more problems. i don't know there's a legislative solution that either party wants to put in place to change people's legal access to guns. i think it's much more how people culturally view guns that will need to shift to prevent tragedy. >> gary, i have a certain re
in columbus. you can watch the proceedings live from the ohio statehouse senate chamber on c-span 3. we will also be watching north carolina as its electoral college meets and it is all on our website, c-span.org. go there to find out more. james thurber, does anything unexpected happen when electoral college day occurs? we saw the voting process in november. are electoral college delegates committed? can anything different happen? guest: yes, something different can happen. in 24 states they are required to vote the ticket that they are running on, these electors. so, they cannot be a faithless elector. we had nine cases since 1920 of them. one of them was actually here in washington, d.c., in 2000. she did not vote at all in protest over the fact that washington, d.c., does not have representation in congress. host: if you would like to talk with james thurber about the electoral college, here are the numbers to call -- the origins of the electoral college. where did it come from and why do we have the system? guest: it goes right to the founding. the founders wanted to not have the c
the campaign, people in hamilton county, in the columbus area -- and also cincinnati, them claiming there was not the infrastructure. guest: the romney campaign, in fairness to them, were not able to get their organization up and running until the spring. that was one of the advantages that president obama had. he was preparing for this campaign for four years, and mitt romney only had months. host: our caller. good morning. caller: good morning. host: you are up early. guest: i like to watch. i want to know what happened to in romney -- ann romney. it seems that after the convention, she pretty much vanished, so i would like to hear your take on that. guest: i actually talked to a lot of staffers about her and her role in the campaign, and what i was told is that there were some advertisements cut of annm -- ann romney. she did not do well with voters. what the romney folks told me is that it was not believable that this belt up -- that the spouse of a canada would be a good test of fire to that canada because it is not believable. of course, his bows would say these nice things ab
, who is romney's ohio campaign director who was hold up at a hotel in columbus. he was hitting refresh on the state and county board of elections websites. he sees two things. provisional ballots that were still out and then secondly, he's hearing that in hamilton county, that crucial county around cincinnati, there are still precincts out that may be favorable. so he tries to do the prudent thing and say let's be careful here because i'm hearing that there's still some good precincts out for us. because of that the romney folks said, all right, let's hang tight. they stop the advance guy from -- who had already made the call to start the wheels in motion to -- >> where romney was going to call the president, things like that -- >> makes the movement from the hotel to the podium. that will started. the advance guy has to call back four people and say, stop, stop, stop. for every an hour -- >> it is no bill daley and al gore. >> it was going to that. they even drafted a speech for paul ryan to give down at the podium saying folks, go home, we'll see you tomorrow morning. they were neari
cameras for a spring training baseball complex. columbus, ohio, bought an underwater robot to help with rescues. coburn wants to know and we do too why we're not spending more wisely on security, or just not spending it at all. >> both parties tend to divide americans into our voters and their voters. let's be really clear. republicans must steer far clear of that trap. >> that was congressman paul ryan saying it was time to reach out to all american voters. fine sentiment, but are they? here now we bring in burgess owens, a former nfl player and super bowl winner who says his community has been hurt badly because of its solid loyal toy the democrats. he's also the author of "it's all about the team." thank you for coming on. i don't know if you heard what paul ryan said. but blacks -- let's see. 95% of african-americans voted for president obama in this last election. what do you make of that? what does that tell you? >> well, the first thing we have to start looking at is what it's going to take for us to get the respect of both parties, and that comes down to us being a people t

, making them pay a little bit more, gets you from the end of the fiscal year on september 30 to columbus day. then what? then what? and it completely ignores the fact that 2/3 of the federal budget, the federal budget is $3.6 trillion, 2/3 of the federal budget is what's called the middle class entitlements. so it's medicare, medicaid, social security, and the interest on the debt. those checks go out automatically. there is nothing any member of congress has to vote on. and unless you have a proposal, which simpson-bowles, was and is, you may hear the ads playing on the radio from the nation's c.e.o. and others saying, we can't play small ball, we got to come up with a package that actually heals the country. if there's a sadness that i had, run of the reasons i'm leaving, is if you listen to the people talking, the president's advisors are saying, going over the fiscal cliff, we are putting the republicans in this box on the 2%, that's good for the president. and you hear the democrats saying, wow, listen, if we can have this discharge petition and put the burden, make people not like
which deals with the display cases. in this case the state of georgia and city of columbus has potential of saving 1,180 jobs. at this point with 13 million unemployed in this country and many more underemployed, it's very important for us to come together. i think this is a great example of we can come together to make sure that we are good stewards of our energy, to make sure that our products are the best in the world, the most energy efficient, but yet have commonsense regulations that allow us to continue to push these and make these products here in this country. so, again, i want to thank everybody for their support and hard work on this. and etches to those 1 -- especially to those -- 1,180 people in georgia that will be able to maintain employment. with that i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from georgia yields back. the gentleman from kentucky reserves. the gentleman from california. mr. waxman: mr. speaker, we continue to reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california reserves. the gentleman from kentucky. mr. whitfiel
